Pro Plan Savor Weight Mangement

Recommended Posts

Purina Pro Plan SAVOR Shredded Blend Adult Weight Management Formula Dry Dog Food, to be precise.

I'm trying to manage Bella's pancreatitis with getting her to ingest some many needed calories. From what I understand (can't quite get a straight answer from my vet) around 10% is about the highest fat I'd want to give her. She's been on Royal Canin gastrointestinal but we end up throwing a lot away. She won't eat much of HIlls i/d, either. I'm adding a few things in that she'll actually eat (thanks to @FiveRoooooers and Seamie's list :beatheart) but she still ends up picking and not eating enough. Trying to experiment with some kibbles that she'll eat so that we at least get a good base of calories in her and came across this. Know it's up to 12% fat so know it's a little higher fat than is probably ok but given that she's *supposed* to be eating 5.5 cups of Royal Canin a day and she only generally eats 2.5-3.5 on a good day, am I wrong to not be too concerned? 

Anyone feed this? I know a lot of people here feed Pro Plan formulas and are having good results.

it all depends upon .....everything as i know having fed a dog w/ pancreatitis. yup, how well the pancreas is functioning. my vet wanted felix on under 6% fat- good luck, mmmm wonder about the grain free

i tried science diet- i was desperate and figured i would just look at caloric/fat content. there was one, can't find it right now that was under 12%. the solid gold was way out of my budget- that's when i decided vitamins and what ever. amazon sell rx vitamins for dogs- b complex w/ amino acids, clay- for loose poop,  etc.  unfortunately as some dogs age and body functions diminish they loose weight.  no way can you get more than 2 c of kibble into her on a good day. it's difficult- it's  just like getting food into my 96 year old mom on a bad day. have you tried cereal- yup dry cereal mixed into the food? Cheerios, etc are SWEET! felix loved all of them and rice crispies are a hoot when you add chicken broth. one needs a good laugh daily- try it!

:lol: I LOVE it - we have tons of rice Krispies, will definitely try that and report back 😀

I guess I will keep trying things and try to avoid her getting the runs and see how it goes. Guess I need to learn that trial and error is the new normal with this senior girl.

get some RX VITAMIN CLAY(amazon has it) and just add it to her food. don't even think about it- good stuff in there!
